I have been simply obsessed with this song since I first heard it. So, take a quick look, dance a little bit, think a bit, and come back to read the rest of the post…or not.
The first thought you may be thinking is “Of course she likes this song. She is fat (chunky, fluffy, overweight) so anything that says she should be happy with her self she will like.” Okay, maybe you didn’t go there, but a few people will and I am here to tell you something.
I love this song. It’s not because it’s about being happy in my plus size body. It’s not because she calls skinny woman stick figure, silicon dolls. It’s because the beat is so fun and light!
Now, I do have to touch on something. While I am overweight, I am working really hard to not be. But, there is nothing wrong with being happy in the body you have. Yeah, you may be living an unhealthy life and I encourage everyone to eat healthier. Not because we should all be super skinny, but because we only have one body and we need to take care of it.
No matter how happy you may be with your body, if you are overweight, or even underweight, it is damaging your body and taking years off of your life.
That said, you shouldn’t pick on skinny women either. I don’t understand where people think it is okay to shame someone who is too skinny or overweight. Are we not adults here? It’s a childish thing to do. Even most kids are not going to pick on someone because of their weight unless they have learned it from their parents.
It’s great that women are starting to feel comfortable in their skin. But feeling comfortable also comes with taking care of your body. Are you overweight? Skinny? Slim? Underweight? It doesn’t matter. Focus on eating healthy and getting some kind of exercise. Not to lose weight, but to be healthy.
I know I am just saying the same thing over and over again, only in different words. But I had to get my point across. Stop being ignorant and cruel. Grow up and treat each other with respect. You don’t know the other persons story, they may be healthier than their skinny friend they are with, because that skinny friend is actually anorexic. Or that “anorexic looking” girl may have a very high metabolism , eats healthy, and runs track.
What ever you do…just listen to the song again, because it’s a super fun song!
Happy Friday friends!
